The World's Greatest Painters



Georges Braque

Georges Braque was the co-founder of the cubist movement that will dominate the early 20th century. He began as an apprentice decorative painter before moving to Paris in 1903 to study fine arts. Then, he painted his first impressionist-influenced canvases, before moving closer to Fauvism with compositions like “Port de l'Estaque”. From 1908 onwards, his works broke with the traditional aesthetic. He tried to transpose three-dimensional objects onto two-dimensional paintings and worked with Pablo Picasso on recompositing and geometrization. He pushed the research further in his paintings, then tried sculpture and engraving.
